    It's Pure Awesomeness!!
    The thing that got my appreciation at first sight was the detailed design (CGs and backgrounds), the first scenes in space are really amazing, the story gets more interesting by the minute and imho these 24 minutes were too short because I feel like I need more!! I'm looking forward to the next week, this is gonna be on top of my queue.

    Gargantia On The Verdurous Planet
    This anime had me feeling both happiness and sadness for Ensign Leto (the main character), I love this anime for one reason only, It faces a real life situation and it brings us to question what would hapeen if we met someone from outer space, let alone artificial intelligence.

    NEGATIVE SIDES:

    I don't like how there is some type of love interest between Ensign Leto and the female character. ...

    Awesome Action and Fun to watch, but the characters...
    This is a good action anime, and the story idea is really cool! But I don't think the character development was really that great, I didn't really feel connected to the characters after the 5th episode or so. :/
    I watched it all in one day, so it's good to fill in if you're waiting for new episodes for your other animes. c:

    2nd Best Anime In My Queue ^_^
    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet was absolutely amazing. It had more feels than half of the shows I've seen (but not more than Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day). I can proudly say that this anime has earned it's spot as second best under Attack on Titan. The characters, story, how you bond with the character over time is what makes it the best. I would gladly consider a second season and ...

    It's the little things that count.
    Gargantia was a show that did not truly start to impress me until around episode 7. Prior, conflict seemed negligible and predictability was starting to set in. But halfway through, the show makes a great shift in tone to starkly contrast its bright, colorful, and usually jovial setting and tone. This amplifies the gravity of the latter half of the show three-fold. While I initially dismissed the ...

    Short, But Very Sweet
    Gargantia's ocean world premise will doubtlessly remind viewers of Water World, but such a comparison is coincidental at best.Gargantia mixes high sci-fi concepts with classic dystopian themes and strings it all together with an optimistic humanist message. Indeed, at the heart of Gargantia is an egalitarian outlook grounded in a more socially-minded sense of liberty. That ...

    The best show of the season
    The animation is amazing and the characters are all lovable. It has a strong story and a large amount of smooth character growth. The storyline is not entirely unique (reminds me a lot of xamd) but is still very refreshing and compelling. Easily the best show of its season and will keep you wanting more even after its over.

    Caught me by Surprise!
    Wow, That's all i have to say, WOW.
    At first, i thought this was going to be your typical Mecha Anime and blah; and boy was i wrong! The first 10-15 mins might not get your attention because it feels like any other space mecha anime but then boom, it suddenly grabs your attention. I'm not going to spoil anything but when the main protagonist "Ensign Ledo" gets sucked into a guess a worm ...

    My Top Pick for the Spring 2013 Season
    I'm a sci-fi fan who has been losing interest in mech shows because they tend to follow the same storyline with only slight variations. This show has renewed my interest in the genre. While it reminds me a bit of the American movie "Waterworld", this is no flop. There are enough reviews here describing the story so I'm not going to add anything more other than to say it is a must watch for ...
